Minorca has been designated European Region of Gastronomy 2022, a fully deserved award considering the hard work that has been done on the island over many years. In our opinion, when an award like this is received, it is due to a lot of factors and great team work. The island has shown great commitment to local products and gastronomy, which are crucial when it comes to promoting local culture and traditions.
To celebrate that Minorca has been awarded the European Region of Gastronomy 2022, at Seventh Heaven we have designed a gastronomic route across the island, which is set to take place on 3, 4 and 5 June. We have developed the itinerary together with the renowned food critic Borja Beneyto “Matoses”, who is passionate about the Mediterranean island and is always up to date with the latest developments in the Minorcan gastronomic scene. As always, our programme also includes several art-related events to make it even more unique, so it is ideal not only for foodies but also for those who are after special and exclusive experiences, “collectors of emotions” as we like to call them.
The route includes a dinner, two lunches and a breakfast meal, as well as three cultural activities. We will start with a guided visit to Torralba d’en Salort, one of the most beautiful and best preserved prehistoric settlements in Menorca. It is also one of the largest and most complete. It is made up of two talayots, a spectacular taula (a T-shaped stone monument), a unique hypostyle hall, several prehistoric houses, a cyclopean wall, underground silos and hypogea, as well as a medieval or early modern construction. After delving into its history from the hand of the best tour guide in Minorca, we will have dinner with a special proposal by Bonita Menorca.
Saturday will kick off with a visit to St. Philip’s Castle, where the same guide as the day before will show us some areas that are not usually open to the public. Afterwards we will head to Fornells to enjoy the wonderful proposal by David de Coca in his restaurant Sa Llagosta. On Sunday we will have a delicious local breakfast at the Son Felip organic farm, followed by a visit to the Alaior Contemporary Art Centre. The day will finish with lunch at Sa Pedrera des Pujol, chef Dani Mora’s restaurant and a reference in the Minorcan culinary landscape.
Food critic “Matoses” will join us in all gastronomic events, and together we will savour the amazing food being served at the table. Come with us on our journey to the Seventh Heaven and experience glory through gastronomy and art. Sign up now!
